Apparently it was pretty rare for an enforcement person (police, traffic
warden, etc) to spot an untaxed car by the out of date disc, presumably
because the untaxers did not park them where such people walked. One
parked in my road would remain unnoticed by the authorities for decades.
I reported the one that used to park on the private road where Ma used
to live, but clearly moved on a daily basis. It didn't belong to
anyone who actually lived on that bit of road.
As there were 3 primary schools within a 400 yard radius of Ma's
house, I thought anyone who couldn't be bothered to tax the car
probably wouldn't be that bothered about watching for pedestrians
around the place.
In the end it took a letter to Ma's MP to cause any action to be
taken, then it disappeared.
